Since I’m starting to host this blog myself, I need to test the security of my web server. My first search ended up with Nikto scanner tool (http://hackertarget.com/nikto-tutorial/). It is very easy to run and completes the scan in less than 10 minutes. The scan is by no means complete and more tools will be investigated later. I will post some of the errors and ways to fix them in Ubuntu 12.04 + Apache (2.2.22) setup.
